Ishan Kishan excelling in Pant’s absence
In the absence of Rishabh Pant, Ishan Kishan has impressed with his outstanding batting performances over the past few months. He was recognized as the Player of the Series for being the top run-scorer in the recent three-match ODI series against West Indies.
Kishan amassed 184 runs in three innings, boasting an average of 61.33 and a strike rate of 111.51, with three half-centuries to his credit. He also displayed exceptional composure under pressure during India’s opening match in the 2023 Asia Cup against Pakistan.
